HUMMER

Hummer was a brand of off-road vehicles produced on platforms owned by General Motors. Originally owned by AM General, the brand began selling the Hummer, a civilian version of the military-spec HUMVEE, in 1992. GM bought the Hummer name in 1998 and renamed the model the H1 before adding two smaller models called the H2 and H3. Hummer models became a symbol of environmental irresponsibility because of their poor fuel economy, and the brand was one of the first to be offered for sale by GM before the automaker entered Chapter 11 bankruptcy in June 2009. No buyer was found and GM began winding down the brand in early 2010.

Luxury carmakers make way more than just cars

Automakers can bring in some serious money from licensing out their names. It can also keep a defunct brand in the public eye.
Army's first surplus Humvee auction brings in $744,000

The first public auction of surplus US Army Humvees has came and went, and to call it a rousing success would be a major understatement. Auctioneers IronPlanet Inc., unloaded 25 trucks on behalf of the Department of Defense's Defense Logistics Agency.
Low gas prices bring the Hummer back to life

It took more than the high cost of gas to kill off the Hummer brand, but the military/civilian vehicle's near-endless need for fuel didn't help sales when gas prices started to climb. Turns out, there is still a thirst for the gas-devouring vehicle in the US. The evidence is anecdotal at best, but since we know prices at the pump can change car shopping behavior in America, the idea that more people want a Hummer now than they have these past few years doesn't surprise us at all.
